It all makes sense now

The final project of the quarter took all weekend like I thought it would, but it turns out that today is a holiday. So I had some time to do a strip after all. Robby Rothe, who hosts Lotus Cobra is Evil over at MTG Color Pie, forwarded me a request from Bennie Smith, a writer for Star City Games. Mr. Smith wanted to do a strip of Lotus Cobra is Evil using one of his jokes.

The joke was a pun on the term “foil”, and was certainly not beneath some puns previously seen in Lotus Cobra is Evil. Unfortunately, I could not figure out a way to draw foil cards and make them look foiled, in just plain black and white. Foil versions of the cards in question don’t exist yet, so I couldn’t use photos. In the end, I gave up.

But still, this strip is for him, as anyone who reads his articles on Star City Games should be able to tell.

    This might be the coolest/funniest/most embarassing Magic thing that’s ever happened to me!!! 🙂

    …Why is this not linked to in the LCiE site ?

    Darn it, I hate that there are all these cool Magic art thingies going on all over the ‘net and no place that collects them :/

    @desudesu: The joke is that once Bennie got to the Big Boss, he knew why Vengevine was mythic without having to ask. The Big Boss is The Devil himself, and it’s natural that he would do something evil like make a high-demand card be rare.

    This is awesome. 😀

    @desudesu: I got it in the third frame, even without context. Mainly because I personally know how Vengevine skewed the local trading scene (you could trade a playset of Zendikar fetch lands for 1, or even a Baneslayer…).

    Plus, it’s green. It shares the same color with Lotus Cobra. We all know Lotus Cobra is Evil. You can fill out the conclusion. ^_^

    You should try out Sorin visiting the Older Vampire family and reliase that he has a new uncle! (Barony Vampire!)
